    I love puppets!

    I’ve composed scores for 20+ puppet theatre shows from weird and wonderful Avant Garde adult shows to super cute family shows like Julia ‘The Gruffalo’ Donaldson’s take on ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’.

    Each of them was a joy and pushed me to make new and different kinds of music.

    I wanted to share some of that music BUT… I do like a ‘proper’ song me, a ’singer-songwriter-y’ song. I just do. So I took some of the existing compositions and transformed them into new ‘proper’ songs and what belters they are!

    VERY proud to add this to my catalogue - enjoy!

about

Featuring the stella voice of Deb Grant AKA Jazz fm DJ Anne Frankenstein.

I kept it in the original key, which was initially a poor choice, because it's hard to sing - so I tried it in the 'Leonard' voice and it was.. OK. Then I got Deb to sing it with me and Oh yes! Thats the fella. I love it now.

Also the video is ace.

Originally for 'The Trick' by Odd Doll

lyrics

TIGHTROPE

(Paul)
Saturday night
a drink and a fight
oh its a younger mans game
rattled and cursed
doing our worst
walking the wire again

I’ll show you how to hold on
if you show me how to hold on

and I hope
this tightrope
is high enough to dive from
and I climb
just to get to the time
I hold you so tight as we fall
as we fall

(Deb)
oh what a ride!
real life
here with our feet on the ground

heart in my hand
fighting to stand
gravity dragging us down

I’ll show you how to hold on
if you show me how to hold on

and i hope
this lifeboat
is strong enough to hold us both
and we sail
to the edge of the waves
and scream face to face as we fall
as we fall

(Both)
your hand
in my hand
everything
balancing

I’ll show you how to hold on
if you show me how to hold on

and I hope
this tightrope
is strong enough
to hold us both
and we climb
just to get to the time
your hand is in mine
as we fall
as we fall
